Grammar Choices for Graduate and Professional Writers (Michigan Series in English for Academic & Professional Purposes)
Grammar Choices is a guide to the choices available to academic writers in English. Although there are certainly some rules governing acceptable and unacceptable grammar, there are far more choices to be made among grammatically acceptable forms that have different meanings. The ability to control these meanings will help students communicate more effectively and efficiently in graduate- level and professional academic writing. Grammar Choices is a different kind of grammar book: It is written for graduate students, including MBA, master's, and doctoral candidates, as well as postdoctoral researchers and faculty.
